James Watt Organ Appeal

Thank you for your support

We are delighted to announce that we have reached our target of £6,500 needed to carry out the conservation of the James Watt Organ.  This has been achieved through a combination of £3,000 from the Leche Trust and £3,500 through donations. 

We are extremely grateful to everyone who has donated to this campaign which will allow us to carry out detailed conservation work, bringing this fascinating object back to its former glory.

The Organ will be on display as part of the exhibition ‘How Glasgow Flourished’ at
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum from 18 April to 17 August 2014.  After the exhibition closes the Organ will be kept at the Glasgow Museums Resource Centre where members of the public will be able to visit it.

There is still an opportunity to make a donation towards the exhibition 'How Glasgow Flourished 1714 - 1837'.  All donations will support the education programme and conservation work associated with the exhibition.
